Concrete Admixtures

Admixtures are used for water reduction, workability, increase in concrete slump, controlling the water to cement ratio (wcr), reducing the sack contents, entraining air, waterproofing the concrete, reducing permeability, increase the flow of SCC, shrinkage reduction to control cracking (SRA), corrosion resistance, reduce set times (both chloride and non-chloride), increase set times, reduce Alkali Silica Reactions (ASR), increase in early age strengths, overall increase in strength.  Admixtures can be used individually or in combination to provide various benefits depending on our needs.
